Note from Dennis C. "I had Tim's cassette tapes 30 years ago but didn't copy
them. We lost all contact for 20 years in 1988. A recent online thread got me
thinking about his recording again so I set out to contact him to see if he
still had them. He did and graciously provided me with 3 CDR's. Upon listening,
I was astounded with the sound quality and ecstatic that after 30 years had
passed, I had this recording again. Many thanks to my friend Tim for taping and
sharing it with us all these years later."

Lots of us just graduated High School, this show marked the last time alot heads saw each other before venturing out into the real world from home. I remember the sea of mud which lead to the water spickets, the pregnant women being lifted out by a helicopter, Donna recovering sitting on a stool and Mickey with a small cast on his arm.Were were boxed in by Railroad cars that made gate crashing a challenge.It was the largest amount of people I have ever been around. There was a solid MTB following ( real popular in Jersey 75-78 before they got too into the pop sound) who seemed to filter out when the Dead took the stage.I have no memory of NRPS,Jungle biscuits were in abundance then. THe weather was a factor plus they hadn't been playing as regular for the last month or so. All that aside, the show had awesome moments of the Anthem of the year "Eyes"was fabulous,There were more air guitar playing on that tune than any other in my day! :). Yes we played an inordinate amount of frisbee listening to this tape. The jam out of He's Gone>NFA was special since the playing had been minus significant jamming since 74 era.Performance was a 4, sound was 4 there with all the different versions circulating the Dicks Picks offers the best.. Being the pirate that I am, I would still go out at purchase this show.We had the FM version, I taped it off the radio, thnx to WNEW, I do remember the older freaks freakin out when they played truckin (rather weak but first one since 9-28-75THe dead heads made the Cover of the New York Times!!! RRRRRaceway Park!

One of my top two NFA's. Jeezeuz. They just frickin' ripped that tune inside/out. The whole He's Gone into NFA thing kills. Scratch that. The entire show kills.

When we arrived after walking 5 miles all you could see as far as the eye could reach was a sea of people, we couldn't even see where the stage was until we went forward.
The strangest part was after the show when over 100,000 people were trying to leave. The crowd seized the fence to the race-track and started shaking it. This was not some flimsy fence, but thick 15ft high steel posts embedded in cement, with a taut chain link fence. One person couldn't even shake it at all.
But, that crowd just started rocking it back and forth until they just tore it down and walked over it in a huge sea.
